The importance of sleep has been reflected in the writing of Eastern and Western religions and civilisations since time immemorial. In this seminar, Dr Haliburn proposes to talk with you about some of what we know about sleep, and the fact that there is still a lot more we don't know! She will start by describing normal sleep and discuss the important link between the role of Attachment and sleep across the lifespan - from infancy to old-age. Why we need sleep, sleep disturbance and its interrelationship with depression, Insomnia and its effects on physical and mental health, sleepy teens, and sleep in mid and late life are some of what Dr Haliburn hopes to discuss.
Your questions will also be most welcome!
